Paper Abstract

This paper describes two applications for HTS technology on an airborne platform. The first application is a rf front-end for an 8 to 40 GHz microwave/millimeter-wave ESM system. The second application is a 2 to 4 GHz HTS Spiral Antenna Array System. The HTS antenna system maintains a wide field of view with a performance that approaches a steerable beam antenna. This is a cost effective approach for improving the collection capability of a system without the expense of developing a steerable beam antenna and the associated beam control hardware (tracker) and software.
